Emotional Response completes the Schleißen series, bringing together the legendary Colin Potter with two of Italy’s best experimental / drone / industrial producers in Alessio Natalizia and Guido Zen for a one off special recording, plus again highlighting one last Dusseldorf af liated project, with the Osnabrück based, beautiful ambient touches of producer Niklas Rehme-Schlüter aka Cass.

When the idea of the split series was born, one of the aims was to get producers who have worked with the label to come together and record special pieces. However, it was not until the nal release that this nally occurred and who better in which to do this.

Having seen a number of reissues come out in the last 18 months - one of which on the distant relative label, Sacred Summits, Colin Potter has brought him in to the orbit of two artists closely associated with Emotional Response in Mr Natalizia and Mr Zen.

The assimilated Parts 1 and 2 provide a perfect marriage of methods. Percussion hinting at Industial and Techno is explored, while the constant Drone in ux and disintegration grab your attention, overlapping with rhythmic repetition deeper and deeper.

To end is the ambience of Cass. Taken from the limited “Hiding Place” cassette only album, the pieces here are the perfect completion. Found sounds, loops, piano, synthesis, all intertwine and overlap to bathe you in pause, a one last time call to stop and (un)listen.
